HR consultancy

Hands-on HR support and training

Our commercial and pragmatic HR consultancy service is available for

  • A temporary HR management solution
  • additional HR or training support to bolster an HR team at a time of increased need
  • small organisations that do not need a full time permanent HR manager,
  • on site support on an ad hoc basis as the need arises
  • expanding organisations requiring rapid assistance at short notice

Maintaining excellent HR functions can be a significant challenge for all businesses.

Sometimes directors, financial teams or senior managers are diverted from their main responsibilities to sorting out an HR mess or even spending disproportionate time managing the day-to-day HR function. But an expert costs less than you think, and can actually save you time and money. We can ensure compliance and minimise risks.

Our HR consultancy team is knowledgeable and approachable with an enviable track record. And as an SME ourselves, our team  at Stephens Scown is well-versed in the challenges faced by businesses across the region.

In fact, we’ve been recognised as the number one law firm for SMEs in Devon and Cornwall – as well as UK Law Firm of the Year at the British Legal Awards 2016.

Our CIPD qualified professionals can help you with:

  • HR consultancy and on-site support, including running meetings and investigations, increasing your HR capacity, and helping you to deal with the pain of an unexpected employment issue. Benefit from the support of expert employment lawyers on a flexible basis – with your confidence protected by legal professional privilege.


  • Bespoke HR training packages tailored to meet your specific circumstances and business challenges, including upskilling managers to avoid future issues.


  • HR mentoring programmes, including the development of administrative or junior HR employees, as well as sessions tailored to general administrators and managers who may not be HR experts, to help professionalise your business’s approach to staff issues.


We offer our clients the flexibility of expert HR support without the expense of employing a full-time HR manager. You’ll also get the extra reassurance of knowing that our guidance is backed up by highly regarded solicitors . In addition, many of our team have both legal and HR qualifications.
